“Thank you for all the pampering today,” remarked Balwinder Kaur, one of the 30-odd senior ladies feted at Gurdwara Sahib Subang on a recent Sunday. Istri Satsang Jatha (women’s wing) set the mood of the celebrations with a couple of soulful shabads in the kirtan darbar.
Jasbir Kaur, a regular at GS Subang, noted that it was relatively easy to relate to the katha by resident granthi Jaspal Singh on the role of Sikh mothers as it was both in simple Punjabi and an interactive session.
After the Ardas, the large turnout adjourned to the Guru Ka Langgar hall where the seniors (above age 70) were honoured with a cake-cutting and a gift each after a sumptuous lunch.
Jagdeep, a mother of two young ones who had brought her grandmother Surinder Kaur, said her Nani (maternal grandmother) was really excited as she fed cake to other seniors and was delighted to have been among the special guests of honour.
Subang Sikh Association Selangor (SSAS) president Amrick Singh, whose mother was one of the ‘Supermums’, observed that the effort put in by the organising team had been fruitful as evident on the happy faces of the mothers and grandmothers.
SSAS manages the one-year old Subang gurdwara located in the Malaysian state of Selangor.
